Davitts 2-8 Charlestown 0-7
Davitts Senior team kicked off their 2015 campaign with a fine seven point defeat of Charlestown in the Michael Walsh League in Bekan on Friday night. Things didn’t look too good for Davitts at halftime as they trailed by a point after playing with the assistance of the wind in the first half.
